I'm glad to give others a smile but I do eagerly anticipate others' contributions. Perhaps I should sit on my hands for awhile and focus on quality more than quantity. In the meantime take a gander at the "Romeo and Juliet" double dactyl that can be found HERE (scroll down a bit). Truly, a work of mad genius it is.

Funnybones honeybones,
Doctor A Williams has
Scrip for a new kind of
Comical rhyme.

Sharp wits he operates:
Cutting and pasting he
Iatrogenically
Slays us each time!

I guess I confus-ed, that's
right, it's me, etaoin;
the order in which the
name ought to have been.

try as I might, I con-
-tinually evade rules
prevaricatingly
playing the fool.

Coarse-ary sorcery
Bath Wife of Chaucer, G.
Told of a rapist sent
Out on a quest:

Married to mutable
Octogenarian,
Faced with dilemma, said
“Dear you know best.”

The Physician’s Tale

woefully soulfully
comely Verginia
Apius creyves her for
lecherus sport

conspiratorial
perjurer Claudius
habeus corpus
obteyns from the court

fader Verginius
axiomatically
practyces filicide
honour to save

prosecutorial
consequence: Claudius,
banished; for Apius,
unhallowed grave

--by Alex, who writes in the style of the old masters and shamelessly rips off John Held, Jr's epitaphs
